New cooler for 6600GT (part 1/2)

Few weeks ago I bought a 6600GT for myself and tested it with 3DMark03. After few tests the computer froze up completely. I thought that maybe it overheated and after booting the computer I started Portal in window mode and put SpeedFan next to it to draw a temperature graph of the GPU. After few minutes it was about 80 C. Not good at all.

So I underclocked it from 500/900 to about 400/800 to avoid overheating and crashing and started looking for a suitable cooler and got a good one from Jipa (thanks) few days ago. After some cutting and drilling it was ready and I mounted it to the card.

Results (3DMark03):

Asus A7N8X-X, AMD Athlon 2500+ (1836MHz), 512MB (333MHz), Leadtek 6600GT 128MB

Stock cooler, default speed (500/900)
